Here you have the opportunity to purchase a 2020 Fears Brunswick Midas Polar White which is now Discontinued and no longer being produced. This Brunswick is made with only 10 pieces produced each year across 2 models when it was in production, each piece has a unique serial number engraved between the 20mm lugs at 12 o’clock, this number can identify the watch's history from its master database. The inspiration for the case for this watch comes from a Fears watch originally made in 1924. The case starts life as a solid block of marine-grade Phosphor Bronze, the finish and depth of polishing are quite exquisite and showcase the skill and attention to detail of the watchmakers, the polished Bronze has a “Dual-Gold” coating; the first is a layer of 18ct rose gold then a layer of 9ct yellow gold, the two layers of differing golds create a unique warm yellow-gold colour to the watch. The curvaceous flanks lead to a lug-to-lug length of 43mm and a case thickness of 11.5mm for a comfortable cushion fit, and to facilitate daily winding the watch features a traditional “onion” shaped crown, coated in the same "Dual-Gold", this being made in Switzerland. A domed sapphire crystal sits above an incredible Midas White dial which is a hand-polished white lacquer, expertly made in Germany by one of the world’s best dial makers. After the layers of white lacquer are applied and hand-polished, multiple layers of crisp black ink bring the dial to life using a numeral set used by Fears in 1946. This effect is complemented by the concentric circle finishing on the sunken sub-seconds, at 6 o’clock. Truly a masterclass in dial manufacture. Each set of hands is subtly skeletonised before being coated in “Dual Gold”, they are all finished by their expert in-house watchmakers in the UK creating depth and finishing rarely seen on mass-produced, stamped hands. Watch hand production and construction is a practice performed by only a handful of British watch brands. On the reverse, we have a solid stainless steel case back with a spun circular-grained finish, inside we have a hand-wound ETA 7001, 17 jewels, and 18,000 beats per hour. First introduced in the 1970s it quickly gained a reputation for being reliable, its slim design incorporates an Incabloc shock system, and each movement is serviced and hand-finished here in Britain, applying Côtes de Genève striping and Rhodium plating, once re-assembled and thoroughly tested it receives its “Golden Pipette” which is handmade and applied to the bridge. Each watch is individually checked by Nicholas before it leaves the premises. Fitted on a 20mm handmade Fears Bristol Brown leather strap, its calf leather is vegetable-tanned in one of Britain's oldest tanneries in Bristol- Thomas Ware & Sons, the accompanying “Dual-Gold” buckle pin buckle carries the final flourish of an engraving of the Fears pipette logo. The Brunswick Midas Polar White is presented in a bespoke wooden box, crafted in Britain from English Ash, which is stained Fears Blue, lined in genuine cream suede, the watch sits proudly on a special cushion.
